The current paper investigated the following research questions regarding measures of fidelity: (1) Is there a significant relationship between two different measures of fidelity of implementation: a survey of instructional practices and coded videos of classroom lessons? Does the strength of this relationship differ between treatment and control teachers?; and (2) Do these measures of fidelity of implementation differ in their predictive value regarding student outcomes? Data were collected from teachers and students in 57 public schools across the state of Massachusetts during the 2010-2011 school year. Suburban, urban, and rural schools were represented. Teachers in the treatment condition were asked to implement the intervention materials in their classrooms once or twice a week. Teachers in the control condition followed business-as-usual practices in their classrooms. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
